Our research evolves around information processing combined with cutting edge photonics. Within this field, we made fundamental contributions in photonic AI and implemented numerous architectures of optical neural networks. As a long term objective we want to establish novel substrates for neuromorphic computing.

In 2015 I obtained a permanent CNRS position as a researcher at the FEMTO-ST institute. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the IFISC in Palma de Mallorca.

Our research has been cited over 3500 times and I have been invited to over 40 international conferences. I participated and lead multiple research projects, including projects funded by the Eurpean Comission, the Spanish Ministry of Education and Industry, the French Ministry of Education and the Volkswagen Foundation.

Since 2019 I also act as managing editor of nanophotonics.
